CLASS OF 1966
DALLAS P. DICKINSON
Dallas died December 7, 2015.
Born in Akron, Ohio, Dallas graduated from Swoyerville High School, in Pennsylvania, where he was class valedictorian, president of the honor society, and member of the key club and baseball team.
At Princeton Dallas majored in English, served as a chapel deacon, and belonged to the Whig-Clio Society and Tower Club. He roomed with Mel Branch, Steve Bakke, Irv Faber, and John Williams.
After graduation, Dallas earned a Master of Arts in Teaching and a Doctor of Philosophy in educational administration, both from Northwestern University.
He began his career as a teacher and coach in Chicago public schools. He later relocated to Ft. Worth, Texas, where he served at various times as an administrator at Texas Christian University, an executive recruiter, a management consultant, and a fund-raising consultant. More recently, he made his home in Portland, Maine, where he enjoyed hiking and other outdoor pursuits.
He would want it recorded that he was a life-long Cleveland Indians fan.
Dallas is survived by three children, Dallas, Jr. (Princeton ’95), Geoffrey, and Elizabeth, and four grandchildren. The Class extends its condolences to them and their families.
